Mystery audiobooks and other things to pass the time

My grandmother recently had a shoulder replacement and was never a huge television fan, so I'm looking for audiobooks and podcasts to put on a digital audio player for her.

I know she likes mystery titles, so any notable authors and titles in that genre would be good. She follows the news and politics, so maybe a few podcasts or interesting audiobooks would be good. In that department, she's not too far from your average mefite, maybe left of center in the American political spectrum. Any suggestions beyond NPR and Radio Open Source would be good. She was an artist in her past life, but I'm not sure she wants to hear about art right now...
Also, what is the best place to buy audiobooks nowadays? Amazon? Audible?
Thanks in advance!
